The Isle of Love is a bittersweet tale of love, loss, recovery and discovery infused with the quirky lyrical genius of Adam Ross’ music. The play addresses the beauty and restorative qualities of island life and also explores the reasons people choose to visit, to remain, to depart and to return.
Inspired by the narrative character of the music produced by Randolph’s Leap, Euan Martin and Dave Smith are delighted to be collaborating with Adam Ross to create a piece of theatre based around the themes of his songs and incorporating his performance in a dramatic context. The cornerstone of this piece will be “The Isle of Love”, a celebration of the ambience of the Scottish Hebridean island. This ambience, and some of the darker reasons people are attracted to the islands, will be explored. The piece will be performed by a versatile cast accompanied by live music. It will reveal the characters’ backstories and explore the healing and spiritual nourishment that such a visit, or relocation can bring and also the issues it can expose.
